Web giant Google and Apple have come up with an interesting concept that would surprise the new age mobile users.

The companies are looking forward to building a stronger and bigger customer base which is estimated to grow by 2012 with around 270 millions mobile phone units to be shipped across the globe.
The Androids and iPhones manufactured by Google and Apple respectively have a built-in software technology that helps the device to transmit back the location to their respective manufacturers. However such technology is likely to hamper the privacy aspect of the user and the government is finding it a real issue that is likely to cause a commotion amongst users in the near future.
Mobile web design experts say that the iPhones are sooner to be referred to as iTracks rather than a mobile phone device. The unauthorized spying of the user’s location might benefit the manufacturers yet hamper the privacy aspect of the user who might not have any clue about such tracking programs incorporated in his/her cell phone.
